Why does it seem like law enforcement makes an appearance at most local hip-hop events when, in fact, most of the Sacramento Valley’s emcees aren’t spitting rhymes about thugging and bruising their counterparts? Quite the opposite; ambidextrous rappers like Crazy Ballhead prove they can work equally well both as a track act and with a live band and still attract a crowd that anyone can hang with. This Friday, instead of braving the awful Labor Day traffic that awaits, why not make a trip to the popular 10th and S Street bar where Mr. Ballhead will hold court? You’re guaranteed he’ll give 110 percent—and he’ll be servicing some new material. 1901 10th Street,
